The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.

In the beginning of the episode, Kale Ingram (Arliss Howard) is searching his apartment for bugs. In the scene he is wearing a "USMC" tee shirt. This is a reference to his most famous role - as Private Cowboy in Full Metal Jacket, where he played a US Marine. See more »
The 10th episode of the series continues to build up to the climax in an intriguing manner.
We have seen Will becoming more and more paranoid as he can trust no one. In the episode, he even doubts the intentions of his 'lady' friend, and it is clear that the investigation is having a huge toll on his psyche. Will also makes contact with Katherine, who reveals how important the four-leaf clover actually is and how it connects with a lot of events. It is great to see Will and Katherine connecting once and for all in their importance in this conspiracy. However, it probably ends here, since Katherine was very obviously threatened to not talk to Will anymore. Of course, they do not want these two particular characters interacting, since it will only cause their destruction.
The episode also continues with Kale Ingram, who is probably the most intriguing character on the show, being just as paranoid as Will, and we learn that he is really not that deep into the secrets as we thought he was. We also see Tanya hiding some very personal demons, and Tanya has slowly and surely become just as intriguing as Ingram. Why IS life so hard for her? The actress is playing her brilliantly and subtly. On the other spectrum, we have Maggie's personal life, which we had not seen in several episodes.
Overall, another very strong episode of the series, and one can only guess how the season will end.
